Just think of all the good that could be done with all this campaign cash. When will we get it together in this country and start doing the right thing.

Twitter journalism. Ask the question on line first and then wait for the campaign to answer? Lately I’m seeing that all the time from many professional journalists. Shouldn’t Maxwell have asked the campaign first before posting his question on line?
Rauner’s no longer giving money to Wilson or the IPI, pretty soon he won’t have to bankroll the entire Illinois Republican establishment if he doesn’t want to, he’s about to be swimming in dough. Potentially literally, he could actually build a Scrooge McDuck vault full of money to swim in, and frankly he should.
Let’s be fair to Wilson here. Wilson has been doing this exact same thing for years now. Rauner was right there the last time he did this same thing in January, and Mr. “fightin’ the corrupt system” presumably didn’t say boo about it to either Wilson or the press. Now all of a sudden it’s a big problem for Rauner only because he wanted to glom onto Wilson’s “property tax are too high” publicity show by giving a campaign speech inside a church, trying to get some attention from the AA community.
Only now is Rauner running away from Wilson’s org, but it was fine before? I’d think Wilson and the congregants should be the offended party here. If Rauner was ok with this happening in January, he should be fine with it in July.
Sadly Rauner & Wilson show how disconnected those in politics are from the average tax payer/voter. They use money to do their bidding and work; we have to do the work ourselves. BTW did Rauner give money to IPI since August ‘17 “fall out?”
